My son is 5 months old. I've been working 3 days a week, pumping twice while I'm gone, and exclusively nursing when I'm with him since he was 9 weeks old. I've never had a problem with my milk supply. Recently I went from 5-6 ounces every 3 hours to 2-4 ounces. Nothing has changed. It doesn't seem like he's satisfied with the amount he's getting. I'm also nervous because we have very little backup in the freezer for emergencies and I do not want to give him formula. I'm nervous to pump more than I am because I want to have enough for him. I have added a few extra pumping sessions but it hasn't seemed to help. I drink plenty of water. Has this happened to anyone and do you have any advice for picking things back up?
